“Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18 NLT)
A classic Proverb. How could I not choose this one today?
But the usual saying is: Pride comes before a fall. Which is not quite the same thing. Here it is worse. Pride before destruction.
And how irritating are those snooty people who think they know better! Well, they’d better watch their step. Haughtiness leads to a fall.
